Monday, Sept. 29, 1862

Kate went up to meet William at Scott's Landing with the buggy, he having gone to town on the morning train.  She called at Mr. Greenwood's.  They are in great trouble.  Mr. G. started this morning for Jacinto where Theodore is.  He is a most talented and estimable young man, a graduate of Marietta College, one upon whom great hopes have centered.  He is on Gen. Rosecrans' Staff with rank as Captain, and acted as aid to the General in the battle of Luka.
Began a letter to Jane S. Shedd.

Peggy's comments:
Jane Shedd is Julia's niece and sister to Rufus, Ephraim, Kate and Lucy Dawes.  Before the outbreak of the Civil War, Jane had left the country with her husband to serve as missionaries in Persia.
